Latvian collaborators visit the Stanford Media Preservation Lab

Partners at the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia visit SMPL

The Stanford Media Preservation Lab (SMPL) team was thrilled to host Evita Feldentāle and Lelde Neimane, our partners in the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia audiovisual archive project, on May 31 at SMPL’s facilities in Redwood City.  Lelde is the archive curator and oral historian, while Evita is responsible for developing detailed descriptions, including English abstracts, for each of the 4,000 recorded oral histories in the archive. Through a multi-year project between the Museum and Stanford Libraries, this unique collection has been digitized for preservation and access at Stanford. All of the project work has been done in a distributed fashion between our respective locations plus the digitization vendor's facility, so it is a genuine treat to meet together as a team!
